Darth Plagueis: Star Wars Book Summary


He was the most powerful Sith lord who ever lived.
But could he be the only one who never died?
 
“Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.”
—Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
 
Darth Plagueis: one of the most brilliant Sith Lords who ever lived. Possessing power is all he desires. Losing it is the only thing he fears. As an apprentice, he embraces the ruthless ways of the Sith. And when the time is right, he destroys his Master—but vows never to suffer the same fate. For like no other disciple of the dark side, Darth Plagueis learns to command the ultimate power . . . over life and death.
 
Darth Sidious: Plagueis’s chosen apprentice. Under the guidance of his Master, he secretly studies the ways of the Sith, while publicly rising to power in the galactic government, first as Senator, then as Chancellor, and eventually as Emperor.
 
Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, Master and acolyte, target the galaxy for domination—and the Jedi Order for annihilation. But can they defy the merciless Sith tradition? Or will the desire of one to rule supreme, and the dream of the other to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Darth Plagueis: Star Wars - James Luceno Reviews

  • Definitely worth a read

    By Likable guy

    Besides the fact this story was well written, it makes absolute sense if you follow Star Wars. This book explains a lot and should have been made into a movie/film. It was still exciting using my imagination based off of the visual Star Wars I've seen in the movies/comics. Going back and rewatching the movies, it all makes more sense. This book brings much clarity, versus going in blind as many have in regards to the "Prequels".
  • Best Star Wars Book

    I've read just about all of the Star Wars books, and this one by far is the best book of them all! I couldn't put it down, the back story of Palpatine has always interested me, but I never knew it could be this good. This is a great piece of the extended universe.
  • Loved it!

    This was by far the best Star Wars book I have ever read. This is a political drama within the backdrop of the Star Wars Galaxy. The author did an excellent job of linking The main characters with the Star Wars movies.
  • Less about Plagueis more about Sideous

    Good read, will encourage watching episodes one and two with a new perspective. Although the book is titled Darth Plagueis, there is just as much writing about Palpatine (borderline more) than the subject of the book.

    Just wasn't a good story. Mostly because of Palpatine. This book made me glad that Disney did away with these stories being canonical.
  • Fave Star Wars book ever

    This book will make you view The Phantom Menace in a whole new, considerably less crappy light. Darth Plageuis is responsible in a behind-the-scenes way for so many events that happen in the timeline of the 7 movies. Will really give you a sense of the evil brilliance of Palpatine, and the role of Darth Maul as well. SO good. Should be canon.
  • Confirmed!

    They don't write them like this anymore. Really enjoyed this novel. Couldn't put it down. Ties in well with the Prequels but gives it the true Star Wars feel
